My board feels hevay:not that way
 
Well,I've working on my presses and ollies and 180s and so on... there is something i noticed:my board feels heavy and not lively(not because of board of course-its my fault).I feel like I'm trying to hop/turn a wood plank or a tree.

Any tips or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.cheers

Hard to say but it sounds like you might need to work on tightening your core. Also sucking your knees up when spinning is helpful.

Throwing a board around is not easy when you don't have the proper technique and fundamentals in place.

What board do you have? It very well may be related to the board.

keep practicing? it would help to know what kind of setup you're on just in case, but it's probably more a question of being more proactive with your board. it takes a while, but at some point you'll figure out how to use that "wood plank" to your advantage. it shouldn't feel like you're dragging a 2x4 along with you, but more like having a diving board attached to your feet. just keep doing those presses and ollies (and of course the penguin walk) and eventually you'll start feeling lighter on your board.

and ignore those kids that make it look easy. it is NOT easy, especially not at the beginning.

speaking of penguin walk, how do one do it?

the pengiun walk is just standing on the board and facing straight out rotating one of the feet 45 degree out and then the other one.

its like what you do when you get stuck in the flats and try and wiggle your way out.


ON the ollie part, try and put weight on front foot or part of the board and rock back onto the back foot or part of board to get energy. let the board flex do the work .

Practice Standing Nose Press, and Tail Presses, then weight forward and use the Toe Edge to "spring" off and into the next one!!!!!

Kinda like taking big lunging steps, but usin the pop in the board to assist!!!!!

Here's a good video on how to do it. Pretty much exactly what MK just said, just in video form.
